So just in case you’ve been totally cut off from the news I need to make you aware of something……. There is (as you read this) an apocalyptic size hurricane headed for us here in NYC. Are we going to be ok? you ask. Yes Kate I and the cat are on the top of the slope in Park Slope and with last years Micro Burst/Tornado in our neighborhood most of the weak trees have been knocked down already. This doesn’t mean we are ill prepared. Bottles of water will be bought and extra supplies are being horded. ButtFUZZ hates the storms so I have reassured her that nothing will happen. Although I must admit I’m looking forward to her little gray freakout.

With all this talk about how powerful this storm is going to be and all the whipping up the media is doing. I thought I’d give you a few tools you could use.
1. Check out this great map the NYTimes put up. You can track the storm in real time. You’ll be able to see it hit us in Brooklyn.
2. Last time we had a Hurricane of note in NYC was 1938. This podcast I listen to called “The Story” interviews a women that was caught in the storm out in the bay in Amagansett.

I will be live tweeting the entire storm so you can check back here on the right side of the page under Sweet Tweets to stay up to date on how the whole thing is going down.
Good Luck East Cost!!!!

    They’re pretty good. I’m just saying.

  • pauldiehl says:

    I’ll say this. You and Brian are my life compass so I will try.

  • Marty Mar says:

    A couple of thoughts for you Paul. 1) Dark n Stormys tend to be overrated. Stick with the Coors. 2) The picture of Dr. Diehl at “THE” pinball hall of fame is possibly the best picture of all time. You are correct. 3) It is not hurricanes that kill people. Debris kills people. Wear a helmet. I’m serious.

  • pauldiehl says:

    Thanks Martin…
    1. I’m glad you agree with me on the Coors
    2. Love the pinball hall of fame. I may visit if you’d like to join
    3. I always ware a helmet. Safety is my passion
    4. I think we should always talk in list I’m finding this a helpful way to communicate efficiently .

  • Pyramid Schemez says:

    buttFUZZ translates roughly to Dark & Stormy in croatian dialect.

  • Brian L. says:

    More people need me and Pyramid Schemez as life compasses. Dark n Stormyies are boss hawg. buttFUZZ does not translate to Dark n Stormy in Croatian. Alas.

  • pauldiehl says:

    Brian that’s true. Although it turns out that in French ButtFUZZ roughly translates to Hurricane. Weird!

  • Pyramid Schemez says:

    If I’m lyin’, I’m dyin’!
